electronica // swanky lounge

Oozing with provocative charm, Bitter:Sweet‘s music is a s’mores of sexy melodies and chocolate-covered lyrics – each bite more delicious and mocking an endless craving. Turntables seduce a harp; strings and drums beckon basslines; while Shana’s voice is smoldering and sly, always teasing and pleasing, gently kindling before it ignites. Their tantalizing tendencies explore your innermost desires by fashioning sound as comely exotic dancing fire that casually mellows then miraculously rages.

It’s no surprise they’ve highlighted numerous tv shows and movies since their debut, and seeing them live is a sensuous delight. Supported by a full band, they arouse shagadelic sincerities luring souls to dance with a touch of mystery emanating from their presence. Clearly, they’ve mastered their craft of making music that’s playful and seductive while translating this to a fantastic lounge experience.

Be sure to say hello afterward; they’re some of the nicest folks I’ve met. And get there early for a warm-up by DJ L.C. mixing the likes of Rod Stewart, Genesis, and The Doors over danceable hip-hop beats that would make the RZA smile. Outstanding. Here’s photos I took during their show at Revolution Hall last week, and two aurgasmic songs from their latest album, Drama.

    Gotta ask, Kyle, what you were using for camera/lens at the show — those are pretty wonderfully exposed/detailed shots for a club setting. :)

  9. Kyle :

    much thanks John; i’m using a Canon 40D with a Canon 85mm 1.8 for close-ups, and a Canon 28mm 1.8 for wide shots.

    I always see your blog.
    I am looking forward to renewal of your blog.
    Please take a look my site, if it’s possible.

  17. JR :

    Their last album was a particular favorite of mine. I also have a strong preference for underrated and unheard music and feature it on my site. Thanks for spotlighting this great group.


  18. godzi :

    Bitter Sweet are nice but they make me think of Combustible Edison, who were so very much better in every way.

  19. Adam :

    Reminds me allot of Esthero’s first album…

  20. Kyle :

    @godzi: Combustible Edison were great, but their sound is very different from Bitter:Sweet. It’s like comparing The Beatles with The Rolling Stones, on a lounge basis instead of rock; to each their favorite.

    Here’s the rest of my photos from that night:

  21. Jane :

  22. Erik :
